My first childhood superhero, Brian Sipe
What I love about Brian Sipe’s history with the Browns is that he started out as an NFL draft pick in the 13th round, at #330. He sat on the bench and learned for two seasons. When he did start full-time in 1976, the Browns started to win finishing at 9-5. By 1980, he won the NFL MVP award and was leading the legendary “Kardiac Kids” to last-second wins several times. Sipe played in Cleveland for 10 seasons. The heartbreaking loss to the Oakland Raiders in the 1981 playoff game will live on forever and unfortunately, Sipe is tied to that interception, but what a moment it was. Sipe finished throwing 154 touchdowns in his career with the Browns, but his consistency and playing for a decade is what makes him so important to Browns’ history.
